This event is going on all weekend at the Terminal Stores near Chelsea Market. You can taste test a bunch of delicious chocolate, listen to chocolate talks and watch chocolate cooking demos. Tickets are $45, so yes, a splurge. But it’s for the love of chocolate.

Here’s some of the chocolate you can try at the event:

  • Truffle Shots: from CT serves up flavored ganache in a shot glass
  • Rawclates one of the smallest makers in the marketplace, entirely vegan. The bars are gorgeous and very super-food driven
  • Lovie’s Nostalgia serves up Modern Old School Treats such as moon pies and scooter pies with flavors change month to month
  • Long Island City’s SUGAR CUBE will be demoing 3 D chocolate mold making.
  • Moran Etstein’s Chocolate Fashionistas will be on parade in the world’s largest miniature fashion show
  • Fruition Chocolate will be showcasing its Bourbon Bar made by storing cocoa beans in spent Bourbon Barrels from Tuthilltown Distillery
  • A range of chocolate cocktails will be on offer from Marie Brizzard, Coole Swan, Solbeso, and Tuthilltown Distillery
  • An all Ecuadorean pavilion of bean to bar makers will showcase that country’s fine flavor beans
  • Marou features an entire line of Chocolate Bars made from beans grown in Vietnam
  • Cacao from Mexico will be showcased by Chocolates Wolter
  • More taste-testings from Jacques Torres, Valrhona, Pacari and FIKA
